Description

In 1518, the Milanese-Neapolitan princess Bona Sforza travelled to Krakow to marry King Sigismund I of Poland, in one of the most celebrated weddings seen in Renaissance Central Europe. The wedding is remembered today as bringing Italian food and culture to Poland. However, this lecture, marking the 500th anniversary of the wedding, will explore how it also generated new kinds of political ideas and language.
